Crosby & Taylor Measuring Spoons Giveaway (Recipe: Nutella Crepes)

This giveaway is now closed. The Random Number Generator chose Carolyn,  from All Day I Dream About Food. Congrats Carolyn! If you weren’t as lucky as Carolyn, don’t worry. My good friend Deb from SmithBites is giving away a set of Crosby & Taylor Measuring Spoons too! Hustle over to her blog… her giveaway ends on Wednesday, December 22nd!

I love beautiful things… and as my husband will proclaim, I can go into any store and manage to fall in love with the most expensive thing in it. It’s a special gift I have…like a super power of sorts.

Being surrounded by beautiful things just makes me happier, doesn’t it you? The other day I was in my kitchen making crepes for the first time and frankly, I wasn’t having a lot of success. The first several crepes ended up in the garbage disposal. But, you know what? I didn’t let it get me down. I had beautiful music playing on my Kitchen iHome, I was surrounded by my beautiful family, and every time I glanced to my right, I got a peek at this beautiful pewter measuring spoon set from Crosby & Taylor.

I was introduced to the lovely people at Crosby & Taylor when they contacted me about doing a giveaway for a set of their measuring spoons. As I read their story and browsed their product line, I was immediately drawn in…how could I not be? Everything on their site is beautiful. And as I’ve discovered over the past couple of weeks… the team behind Crosby & Taylor are just as beautiful as their products. They are truly the kind of people you want to know and be associated with.

Thanks to Crosby & Taylor, I have a Vineyard Pewter Measuring Spoons and a Pewter Stand to give away to one lucky Dine & Dish reader. This is sure to be an heirloom you’ll pass down through the generations. To enter, all you have to do is:

  • Leave one comment on this post telling me what your most treasured heirloom is that you’ve received.

For multiple entries, you can:

  • Become a fan of Crosby & Taylor on Facebook. Come back to this blog post and leave an additional comment letting me know that you did that.
  • Crosby & Taylor products would make a beautiful, unique gift for anyone on your list. Hint to hubby… I’d love to have the matching vineyard measuring cups! Head over to the Crosby & Taylor website and tell me what product you’d most like to find under your tree.

The giveaway will end at midnight CST on Tuesday, December 14th and it is my goal to get the winner their gorgeous set before the Christmas holiday.

Now, on to those Nutella Crepes. Delicious, yummy, delectable Nutella Crepes from one of my favorite chefs, Jeffrey Saad. Jeffrey made this for the Bush’s Beans team when we were all in Napa this fall and it was *gasp* the first time I had ever tried Nutella. I was an instant fan. Follow the directions on the recipe and if you haven’t made crepes before, take it from me. It is going to take a few crepes down the drain before you get the hang of it, but after that, you’ll be an old pro in no time!

Nutella Crepes from Jeffrey Saad

2      eggs

1      egg yolk

1     cup milk

1/2   cup water

pinch  salt

1.5   ounces butter, melted

1 tsp sugar

dash of vanilla

1    cup all-purpose flour

extra butter to cook with

Nutella

Powdered Sugar for garnish

Combine 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk, milk, water, salt, sugar, vanilla and melted butter in a blender and pulse until foamy  add flour and pulse until smooth. Let the batter sit for an hour.

Heat a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat. Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly.  Cook until the top loses its gloss, which should only take a minute, then flip. The bottom should be golden. Cook the other side for about 15 seconds and then slide out onto a plate. Keep warm in a 250F oven or serve right away spread with Nutella, roll and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Makes about 12 large or 16 small crepes.

I was given a set of Pewter Measuring Spoons from Crosby & Taylor as well as a set to giveaway to you all. The opinions about their product stated in this post, however, are my own

    Functional and beautiful!

    My most treasured heirlooms are the old Christmas ornaments that have been handed down from both sides of our family and now share the same tree. They’re a little worn and tired but I like them and think about the family members who may have hung them in years past.

    Those are stunning spoons! I would have to say, of all that I’ve received, my great-grandmother’s earthenware bowls, the very ones she used to make cookie dough in when I was very young, are my most precious. I wouldn’t be without them and still make her signature cookies in them!

  3. Amanda says

    My most treasured heirloom is the Amber necklace my Grandfather gave my Grandmother just after they were married. It was bought in Denmark as it is tradition to give amber. She passed it on to me and my Son will pass it on to his wife when he marries.

    I did become a fan of Crosby & Taylor, who wouldn’t? How beautiful are the measuring spoons, and also, what a great recipe, my daughter will love these, she is a huge nutella fan!

    Oh man, I love nutella crepes! My most treasured family heirloom is a tie between my grandmother’s favorite cookbook, and the ice cream scoop she’s had since 1955. She gave me both a few trips ago, and I *love* them.

    I LOVE these!!

    I would say that my most treasure heirloom is…a painting that always hung in the living room as a kid. When I was a child, I was always told that it was a painting of my grandma and Tom Selleck fishing together….then I found out when I got older that it really wasn’t. It was just a cheap print of something my parents bought at a department store.

    I think that explains the way I am today.

    Beautiful! My most prized heirloom is a curio that was hand carved by my husbands Grandfather from Czechoslovakia. It’s beautiful.

    Not sure if this qualifies as an heirloom, really, but my grandmother left me her Miraculous Medal, which she wore every day and never took off. My mom pinned it to the inside of my dress on my wedding day.
